We are on our 3rd motor in 7 years and it's happening again. Loud buzzing noise at start up. Anything we can do? 

trying to upload video with my phone but no success with that yet.

I'm a pool service tech. That doesn't sound like the bearings, which usually make a high pitch noise when worn. It sounds more like a vibration of parts.

Hi Sharon,

I would suggest replacing your Waterway Clear Bay pool pump motor with this Waterway Replacement Motor Please note that the motor suggested is a 1 HP standard motor which is equivalent in power to your 1.5 SPL HP Motor. Also, make sure to replace your Shaft Seal, you will need this Waterway Pool Pump Shaft Seal.

Thank You
